Sri Lanka is still up and coming as a tourist spot, so Negombo is luckily relatively unspoiled. Really enjoyed it here!

This is quite good a beach where one can wet the feet or wade in to the water or simply walk around. Entertainment options include sea trips in speed boats wind surfing and yachting. With small children in the family group, we opted for a ride in the speed boat. They ask for a bomb as a fee to the tourists but are open to any kind of bargaining and negotiations, Good option in Negombo area especially when small children in the group

Beach is used actively by fishermen and it’s great to watch them hauling in their catch. Local catamaran trips are a great way to get up close and see fishermen at work. Beach is clean with usual driftwood etc and not full of plastic as others have said.

Dirty water, beach without coconut trees. We had visited at the last our Srilanka tour, had ice cream and left in 10 minutes.

I'm glad we didn't come yo Negombo for the beaches. One walk to the ocean was enough for me. It looks picturesque from a distance, however ALL of the sand is littered with small pieces of rubbish, and the tide line is marked with garbage. Mainly plastic.
